Your letter to the bugman:  I keep finding these tiny bugs on my patio, they bite and cause itching, everything says silverfish or pincher bug , the pinchers are in front , it’s definitely not either of those , it’s the size of a flea , I blew up pics to see better, please tell me what these bugs are?
How you want your letter signed:  Thanks!

Aphid Wolf

This is a predatory Lacewing Larva.  They are often called Aphid Wolves because of the large numbers of Aphids they are able to consume in the garden.  We often get reports of bites from Lacewing Larvae.
